Mangaluru, Apr 5: The residents of Bengre staged a protest against coastal berth and capital dredging under Sagarmala project here on Monday April 5.

The protestors said, “We strongly oppose the coastal berth and capital dredging under Sagarmala project. By bringing the project to Bengre, we realize that the government is trying to evacuate people from Bengre. Since several years, we have been demanding to provide title deeds and RTC documents. Our demands are yet to be fulfilled.

“The fishing community, houses, people involved in dry fish business and fish drying tents will face huge a problem regarding their livelihood due to the construction of the coastal berth which will be 350 meters-long. People here will not have any alternative solution for their livelihood if the project comes up at Bengre. There is a government school close to the area. The project will affect the health condition of the children. So on humanity basis and in view of health condition of school children, we demand the project to be shifted elsewhere.

“Recently, our fishing boats powered away after their ropes snapped due to strong winds. If the boats had gone missing due to the strong winds, then the entire fishing community would have been in dire straits. The government needs to concentrate on providing basic facilities such as jetties for small boats. Our basic demands are not being fulfilled,” they said.

    Why are these people complaining? It is a known fact that the oceans are going to rise in 10 years time due to global warming. Take the govt compensation and make a run for it.

    That's why India still not fully developed compared to other smaller countries like Bangkok, Taiwan, Malaysia & more to come these countries still not armed wit nuclear powers yet their road infrastructure, sky rocket buildings, industry are top notch par with international level. India still fighting for religion & politics. should have been top of world after independence but the corrupt democracy & laws has ruined everything.

    The Sagarmala Programme is the flagship programme of the Ministry of Shipping to promote port-led development in the country by exploiting India's 7,517 km long coastline, 14,500 km of potentially navigable waterways and its strategic location on key international maritime trade routes. In our school days we used go for Picnic and it was a beautiful barren land between Nethravathi and the sea. Now it looks like tiny Indo- Pakistan. Illegally occupied with concrete houses and the garbage scattered all over the places, polluting the river. Vote bank politics Baba.

    Everyone should know about this project and then comment. Govt should go ahead with this and provide alternate arrangements to the people residing there.

    In case the Central/State Government has planned it, it must have planned it for the development of the area and it may be good for all the people. Let's support Modi Government. Jai ho Modiji
